A deviating Net Asset Value (NAV) is used for the calculation of the performance figures. This NAV is calculated based on closing prices of the Fund investments thereby deviating from the NAV which was originally issued and partly calculated based on snapshots (Asia & Pacific investments). The deviating NAV is used to make a better comparison with the benchmark, which is also solely based on closing prices of the investments. However, for the calculation of the performance of 30 November 2021 the originally issued NAV of 1 December 2021 was used as the deviating NAV could not be calculated due to technical circumstances. Also for the calculation of the performance of 31 December 2021 the originally issued NAV of 3 January 2022 was used as the deviating NAV could not be calculated due to technical circumstances. Performance is shown after deduction of ongoing charges. The value of your investments may fluctuate. Past performance provides no guarantee for the future.

Developments per 2022-07-31

July was a strong month for equity markets. The MSCI World Index was up more than 10% as earning numbers and H2 guidance were better than feared and the US Fed was more dovish. The FTSE Global Core Infrastructure Iindex was also up a firm 7.3%, yet not as much as global equity markets. This narrows the YTD performance slightly as the MSCI World Index is still down 4%, while the infrastructure index is up 12%.

The Fund was up 7.1% (net, I share class), slightly behind the benchmark. We had a more challenging start of the month, but recovered most of the relative underperformance during the last two weeks. US pipelines and railroads performed strongly during July (>10%), while Asia was flattish. Our relative outperformance in Europe and US Pipelines was offset by underperformance in Emerging Markets.

On a stock level, the biggest positive contribution in June came from:
1) Rumo (+13%) which is a new position in the Fund (we made the first investment end of June). We believe the stock is undervalued as we expect decent tariff increases, with demand being supported by increased focus on global food security, and constructive prospects for soy harvest. Mid-July, the company agreed to sell a 80% in its T16/19 terminals in Port of Santos, and a broker started pushing the equity story – supporting share price;
2) Cheniere (+15%) underperformed on recession fears recently but recovered some of the underperformance in the second half of July. Most notable was the 24yrs contract Cheniere signed with PetroChina. Contract details are unknown, but as China was able to secure a long-term contract when the EU is after LNG, prices should be firm; and
3) Canadian Pacific (+16%) was supported by the announcement of STB that the merger approval was brought forward by six months.

The biggest negative contributions came from:
1) Jiangsu Expressway (-5%) traded lower on no company news, but was impacted by sentiment on Chinese growth and lockdowns;
2) Malaysia Airport (-4%) which also did not report significant company news; and
3) Tokyo Gas (-3%) was impacted the start of the month by the announcement of Putin that he was replacing the operating company of Sakalin2, which is responsible for 9% of Japans LNG, with his own team. The concern was that Russian gas to Japan could also be cut.

The Kempen infrastructure investment strategy strikes a balance between qualitative, quantitative, sustainability analysis. Our experience and know-how in the area of infrastructure and legislation in combination with extensive data analysis, is converted into fact-based investment decision-making. Our unique valuation analysis and investment process focuses on the long term, carefully following megatrends such as digitization, urbanization and the energy transition. Next to the quantitative approach the investment strategy contains three equally weighted qualitative parameters that determine the warranted valuation: management added value, Infrastructure regulation / quality and ESG. The portfolio managers score each company covered on these three parameters. Companies that excel in ESG for example will be assigned a higher score and hence the warranted valuation for an investment increases.

Portfolio construction of the Strategy is based on cluster neutrality. This ensures a diversified portfolio and neutralizes currency and macro-economic exposure versus the benchmark.

Environmental and/or social characteristics promoted

The Kempen Global Listed Infrastructure Fund (the “Fund”) falls under the scope of article 8 of the SFDR which means that the Sub-Fund promotes environmental and/or social characteristics. By investing in infrastructure companies, clients benefit from exposure to a niche sector that offers predictable cash flows, inflation protection and diversification. The Fund believes that this asset class will enjoy secular growth, driven by digitalization, demographic changes and the energy transition.

The sector plays a key role in facilitating the global move towards a lower carbon eneRgy system (with Sustainable Development Goals Clean Energy (SDG 7) and Climate Action (SDG 13). The Fund therefore commits to the climate goals of the Paris Agreement and Dutch Climate Accord. This encompasses short-term (2025) objectives, a mid-term (2030) ambition and a long-term commitment to be net zero by 2050.

ESG Investment process

The promotion of environmental and/or social characteristics is achieved through the consistent implementation of the funds ESG policy. The ESG policy is fully implemented in our strategy’s investment process across the three relevant pillars of: Exclusion, ESG integration and Active ownership.

In the investment process we assess the ESG profile of a company. We look at each company on a case-by-case basis, taking into account material risks in a given industry in combination with the company’s respective risk exposure, practices and disclosure. This includes an assessment of good governance practices. The investee companies are rated for governance aspects using external research as well as making internal assessments.Furthermore, we look into the company’s exposure to past controversies and future ESG opportunities. Based on the fundamental ESG analysis we form an opinion on the quality of a company’s ESG profile and award a score (1-5). We apply adequate due diligence measures when selecting the assets and such due diligence measures take into account sustainability risk and ESG related risks as it could help to enhance long-term risk adjusted returns for investors, in accordance with the investment objectives of the Fund.

Exclusion

The Fund applies exclusion criteria. These take into account international standards, such as UN Global Compact Framework, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, and our Principles for Responsible Investment commitments. The Fund applies additional exclusion criteria based on product involvement and business conduct.
